Industrial Strength Ruggedized Arduino Products

Industrial Grade Performance and Reliability


Rugged Circuits products are designed and built in the USA with built-in protective circuits and performance enhancing features that put them a level above standard Arduino devices.  We have invented a "RUGGEDIZED" market for those customers that need a more robust higher quality Arduino based solution.  Our products are specifically designed to offer greater performance, last longer, and operate in environments where standard equipment simply fails.  Our electronics operate at higher voltage thresholds, up to 30V vs. 12V for industrial applications, in harsh environment with built-in safeguards including ESD protection and over voltage, and our extended temperature versions operate down to -40C.  So whether you are monitoring sensors in the arctic, integrating with industrial controls in harsh environments, producing a product for market, or simply want premium grade equipment, Rugged Circuits is your reliable hardware provider.

Rugged Circuits also offers custom design services with manufacturing capability.




The Ruggeduino-SE and Ruggeduino-ET are BETTER than EVER.  Improved power supply, Rock-Solid Analog Reference, and USB Reset.  Same GREAT Price.  Click for more details.


The Rugged MEGA and Rugged MEGA ET have been updated to "Industrial Ready" status.  The power supplies have been carefully modified and tested to achieve even greater performance and reliability.  The new sections are more efficient, quieter, more robust, and operate more consistently across the entire operating voltage range.  Output current has doubled from 150mA to 300mA at 3.5V input and up to 500mA with 24V input.  ET versions have carefully selected components to obtain a -40C rating making  it ideal for arctic and automotive applications where temperatures plummet to -40C.  The Rugged MEGA and MEGA ET are truly unique in that they are the only Arduino based platforms that can operate up to 30V and down to -40C.  Now that's COOL!


Why Rugged Circuits?


The videos below show the "little things" that go into the the thought process and design of our products to make "big differences" in performance and reliability.   Inspired by our "10 Ways to Destroy an Arduino" these videos provide an in depth look at just how easy it is to fry a standard Arduino and how we have thoughtfully created a superior solution.  The Ruggeduino SE/ET and Rugged MEGA PROTECT you from ALL 10 methods of destruction.  The protective features of Ruggeduino and Rugged MEGA make them the ideal Arduino UNO and MEGA derivative board.   Rugged products will outlast and outperform regular Arduino boards and save you time and money.  Our products are not just intended to safeguard against mistakes, they are designed to endure grueling environments. 


Engineered and skillfully crafted in the United States of America since 2007
